Celebrating 20 Years of Image Comics with Chris Giarrusso Covers

All through 2012, Image Comics has been celebrating their 20th anniversary in various ways. Most recently, artist Chris Giarrusso (G-Man) lent his artistic talents to an April Fool’s joke depicting The Walking Dead for Kids, but this was just a clever twist on Giarrusso’s tribute to Image Comics. ¬†Throughout the rest of the year, Image Comics will be releasing variant covers to several of it’s titles featuring Giarrusso recreations of the series first issue. ¬†Today we’re excited to unveil for you the first 6 covers and the months they’ll be released.

    Chris Giarrusso is awesome. His books are exactly what All-Ages needs to mean in comics. Check out his Mini Marvels collections if you ever get the chance.
